"Every 5000 years the worlds align, allowing an ancient darkness to strike..."

Thor: The Dark World.

Hello, all!

I did something fun last night. I went with some of my family to see Thor in theaters!

I was very impressed with it.

Over the last 3-ish years, I've become a superhero geek. I think I can in all honesty blame Captain America for this problem.

How could you not love Steve Rodgers?

I really enjoy the first Thor movie. It's fun, the characters are great and there was some really good character building in it.

But it wasn't my favorite.

Thor: The Dark World was brilliant. It reminded me a lot of the Avengers (Go figure:) with lots of humor and that crazy, fun action. I felt like Asgard was portrayed much better in this one and the plot was just over-all more exciting than the first Thor movie.

There were some moments there were rather heartbreakingly beautiful. I love moments like that. And like I said before, the humor was perfect. Whoever writes the scripts for the Avengers movies are brilliant at it.

Thor and Loki...awesome.

The character development was fantastic for these two. Both Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are really good actors and their chemistry was perfect.

I think, for me, Thor was the most likable in this movie. And I loved him in the Avengers so that just means that he keeps getting better. He seems wiser and gentler and I love that.

Loki is...well, he's Tom Hiddleston. Only someone that is as talented as Tom Hiddleston could play such a bad person and make him likable. And trust me, he was very likable in this movie. Sure, there were a few times when you'd really like to pull a Jane Foster and give him a swift right hook...

But mostly you just want him to be a good guy. 
You really want him to be a good guy.

Jane Foster. Not my favorite character, but still, she did a really good job with her roll and I definitely liked her more in this movie than the first one. I can't put my finger on why, but I did. 

A character I wasn't expecting to care about was Frigga--Thor and Loki's mother. I loved her. She was amazing.  Seriously. Prepare yourselves for loving Frigga. :)

And Because I don't want to give away and spoilers, (It's been hard not to!) and because I have to finish making dinner now, I'm going to leave it at this and say no more.

Only that you should go and see it. And stay all the way through the credits. You know why. You should know why. *Grin*

It was pretty clean as far as I can remember. There was one little thing with a fellow not wearing pants. And another little thing with same fellow not wearing clothes. But you don't see anything there. One of those things where it sounds a lot worse than it was. Think Avengers when the Hulk falls from the sky and is in the warehouse. Similar thing. But please check the rating for yourself and do your own research on it. You all know the drill. :)

God Bless~


  1. Heck yeah I hold Steve Rogers entirely to blame for my becoming a superhero fan. I haven't seen Thor yet, I was debating whether or not to based on my mediochre feelings about the first Thor movie. But seeing this, perhaps I will watch it!

    1. Yeah, the first Thor movie wasn't all *that* wonderful. I enjoy it, but I wasn't wild about it. I think you'd like this one more. It's so good! :) Even if you only watch it for Tom Hiddleston, it's worth it. *Nods*

  2. Ooh, it sounds really good! I probably won't make it to cinemas to see this one (Catching Fire and the Desolation of Smaug are taking up my ticket money) but I'm dying to see it when it comes out. :)

    1. I am so excited for the Desolation of Smaug! I can't get enough of Hobbits...Bilbo is perfect. :)


    I loved Loki's character development.

    I liked Jane more in this one too.


    "you just decapitated your grandfather."

    1. *Knucklebump* I loved Loki. Hehe. I am feeling in a very "Watch ALL the Tom Hiddlestion movies" mood.

  4. First of all... Yes, it was all Steve Roger's fault. I liked Iron Man well enough, but wasn't really in to the whole superhero thing until after Captain America.

    And, oh yes! Fregga was really suprisingly great in this one. I think, in the first Thor movie, both she and Odin were under-utilised, as was Asgard itself. The Dark World gave us a much better look into Thor's world. Thor really has grown since the first movie, and while he is still just slightly goofy, there is a weightiness to him now - you can see him being king eventually.

    And Loki ~ well, I love the ambuguity of his character. You never know from one moment to the next if he is going to come about and be a good man, or if he is going to keep going down the dark path he chose for himself. I've always liked him - he is such a great villain - but I liked him the best in this one.
